Introducing the Turning Point Giving Circle.

In 2016, YWCA Hamilton established the Turning Point Giving Circle so women leaders in our community could collaboratively and actively make a difference in the lives of women, girls and their families. 

Through a three-year membership, Turning Point Giving Circle members annually will:
 
  • Build a sustainable fund to support YWCA programs and services including new initiatives
  • Present a YWCA program with a financial gift to continue or implement a specific aspect of their program
  • Present a financial award which recognizes the achievements of a woman who has participated in a YWCA program and is now making a difference in her life and in the lives of others
Turning Point Giving Circle members will meet twice a year to learn about programs, services and individuals at YWCA Hamilton and to democratically decide on financial support. In addition, Turning Point Giving Circle members will have the opportunity to come together during International Women’s Week to attend our annual Women of Distinction awards evening. Throughout the year members will have the opportunity to attend leadership and networking events hosted by YWCA Hamilton to continue building their personal networks, while helping to promote community awareness of the work of YWCA Hamilton. 
 
How do I become involved?
  • YWCA Hamilton Turning Point members are asked to make a financial commitment of $1500
  • The financial commitment can be paid in full or with monthly and/or yearly instalments
  • Attend two meetings per year and the Women of Distinction event in March
  • Attend other YWCA events and support other YWCA initiatives
 
Why become a Turning Point Giving Circle member?
“The Circle’s real and meaningful projects are very well thought out. The women who executed them are experienced and dedicated and those projects are poised to make a positive difference in the lives of the women who will benefit from them,” a Turning Point Giving Circle Member
 
It is the vision of YWCA Hamilton that the Turning Point Giving Circle will create a community of women with diverse backgrounds and interests, who together will make a very real and measurable difference in the lives of women and girls in our community.
